Catch Me If You Can

Sunday 4th May 20036:00 PM, 9:00 PM

In DiCaprio's first showing this season, we see him play a fraudster of the highest calibre.

Leo's character, Frank Abagnale Jr, finds out that life is an awful lot more fun when you're someone else. He goes from being an airline pilot, to a doctor, then tries out being an assistant attorney general and finally a history professor. From one day to the next he gets by through printing fake cheques and then cashing them. His technique is so far advanced that an entire team of federal officials is set up to catch him.

Enter Tom Hanks, Carl Hanratty. It becomes Hanratty's sole objective to hunt down the trickster. The result is a twisting journey as Hanratty slowly closes in on Frank.

The overriding feeling from the film is happy and fun loving, but there's an underlining weight in Leo's character than shows up in a rather heavy way at the end. All in all, a good 2 hours entertainment, and one you should definitely catch..
